Grading for Equity During Remote Learning

August 6, 2020

Teachers are adapting their curriculum and instruction in profound ways in anticipation of this fall term. In such a context, how do we grade in ways that ensure accuracy and equity? In this UC20 session, you'll learn how our use of traditional grading practices, even before the pandemic, often undermined effective teaching and learning and inadvertently perpetuated achievement disparities. We also cover: 

  • Examples of equitable grading practices
  • How equitable grading practices reduce stress, improve achievement for historically under-served student populations, and decrease grade inflation
  • How these practices are specifically beneficial in a remote learning context 

This is the perfect time to critically examine our grading practices and align them with our best teaching (remote or in-person) and our commitment to every student's success. For more insight, connect with Joe Feldman at gradingforequity.org and read his book, Grading for Equity: What It Is, Why It Matters, and How It Can Transform Schools and Classrooms.
